Candidate Profiles


Nancy Johnson Ñ R


Republican Nancy Johnson is seeking re-election to the District One seat on the Hendricks County Council.

Nancy, a widow, has four children and nine grandchildren. Her son Andrew is head of the social studies department at Avon High School.

She has earned an associateÕs degree at Cottey Junior College in Nevada, Mo., and took business classes at Indiana University. She is a 2005 graduate of Leadership Hendricks County and a graduate of the D.I.P.L.O.M.A. program of the Association of Indiana Counties. Nancy worked 23 years for RailroadmenÕs Federal S&L and Huntington National Bank.

She is a past president of the Rotary Club of Avon, a member of board of Hendricks County HistoricalÊ Museum, a member of Avon United Methodist Church, Solid Waste Board of Hendricks County, Hendricks County Economic Development Partnership, and P.E.O. Sisterhood, a philanthropic organization committed to womenÕs education.

During her first term, the council has been proactive and decisive in facing a variety of challenges. This effort has resulted in an over $3,000,000 decrease in the Hendricks County budget for 2010 without significantly decreasing services. With the cooperation of the Hendricks County Commissioners, a health clinic was opened this March for the county employees and their families. This should eventually lower the health insurance cost to the county and also provide better health services to the employees and their families.

Nancy said she is committed to continuing fiscal responsibility, which includes a well executed plan for economic growth and development while also protecting the environment.
